July 16, 2009
The Valley West Community Hospital Auxiliary announces a total of $9,900 awarded to the 2009 scholarship winners.

Congratulations to Jennifer Bauer, Kelly Straka Laszewski, Brittany Pellegrini and Heather Yingling of Sandwich; Brian Beerup of Yorkville; CaLyn Dannenberg of Leland; Cindy Fox, Mary Miller, Sharon Olson and Renata Palaslewicz of Somonauk. The recipients are pursing education in the areas of nursing, radiology, physical therapy and medical school.
Auxiliary scholarships are available to students who live in a community served by Valley West Community Hospital, including Sandwich, Plano, Somonauk, Leland, Yorkville, Bristol, Sheridan, Serena, Newark, Millington, Millbrook, Big Rock, Hinckley and Waterman. Students accepted into or currently enrolled in a bona fide professional program of study for any allied health care curriculum can be considered for a scholarship. The school attendance need not be at an Illinois institution, but must be accredited and/or recognized as a legitimate institution by an appropriate agency. One year scholarships may be renewed based on annual application and evaluation.
The Valley West Community Hospital Auxiliary awarded nearly $75,000 in scholarships over the past eleven years. If you have any questions or need more information about the scholarships or the Auxiliary, please contact Jana Kingston, Volunteer Coordinator, at 815. 786.3704.
